The Theocracy of Layshland is a huge, safe nation, remarkable for its barren, inhospitable landscape, zero percent divorce rate, and state-planned economy. The devout population of 368 million Layshis are fiercely patriotic and enjoy great social equality; they tend to view other, more capitalist countries as somewhat immoral and corrupt.

The medium-sized government prioritizes Spirituality, with Healthcare, Welfare, and Defense also on the agenda. The average income tax rate is 37.4%, but much higher for the wealthy.

The sizeable but inefficient Layshlandian economy, worth 13.6 trillion Porcels a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. The industrial sector is led by the Uranium Mining industry, with significant contributions from Woodchip Exports, Arms Manufacturing, and Furniture Restoration. Average income is 37,070 Porcels, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Blind dates reemerge as a necessary evil in the quest for love, arbitrary election rules are considered sacrosanct, school lunches are made with hypo-allergenic wood pulp, and search and rescue forces now accept cheques and all major credit cards. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Layshland's national animal is the Dragon, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to toxic air pollution.

Layshland is ranked 43,839th in the world and 6th in Chan Jyoti Private World for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 52.16 Whatever.
